Golfers Vasculitis

I have exercise induced vasculitis or "golfers" vasculitis. It makes these painful red welts above my sock line any time I have extended physical activity in the heat. When I was at the beach this summer it got so bad that I couldn't walk for 2 days because when I stood up I felt like my legs were going to split open. Does anyone else have this and have any tips for dealing with it? My doctor says it's just starting to be recognized as a legit condition so there aren't really any recognized treatments yet. Thanks!
